    We are in shock and mourning for this great loss… a difficult reminder of how precious and fragile life can be. We will miss her quiet strength, dedication, gracious warmth, and kindness; but we’ll always carry her memory
    as an example of how we can be better persons. God bless her and her family- especially Bill.
